    No. and my powers of observation are much stronger than the OP.
    Now, if someone said they thought there might be communists in the GOP, I might agree wit dat.

    You just might agree with that, alright. It might just be stupid enough to make the cut for you.

    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Well who is to say, the GOP has their radicals the same as any other political party, now go ahead and say there's not.

    Their radicals wouldn't be communist in nature, though. If they are of a Marxist bent, they'd hate republicans just like all the other Marxists do. The republican radicals would tend to be more skinhead and anarchist than commie. The democrat party gets the commie support.

    Not sure about Marxist but clearly moving away from a Christian foundation as the party seemed to be divided taking the word God out of their platform, putting it back again etc in Charlotte. I mean the bible versus will still come out during election time but overall the party is losing that foundation, which makes it vulnerable to Marxism, or whatever.

    1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

    3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

    4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

    5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

    6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.

    7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

    8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

    9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

    10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.



    This list could have come right out of President Obama's state of the union speech. What do you think, is the modern Democratic Party very closely aligned with the core beliefs of communism or what?
    I just got back from a big Democratic Party meeting where we discussed all ten of those. We normally have a contest where we see who can recite them by heart after drinking 16 ounces of Russian vodka and being blindfolded by the red hammer and cycle flag draped around their head. Leon Trotsky Jr. holds the record.

    It amuses me greatly that 25 years after the end of the Cold War, some people have nothing better to do than try to sniff out Reds.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Re: Is the Democratic Party Marxist?

    The American democratic party has always been staunchly capitalist. That's what liberalism means in most the world.. Capitalism.. Lol..


    The only difference between a democrat and a republican is a democrat believes in moderate capitalism and a republican believes in fanatical capitalism. America has never had a true economically leftist party.
